Johann 'Falco' Hoelzl was undoubtedly the most successful
white male rapper of the 20th century. Not bad for an Austrian
singing in a strange Anglo-German mixture, in a time when rap
was considered to be more or less ghetto music and only
a few white pop stars dared to approach this new music idiom
(BLONDIE-Rapture, CLASH-The Magnificent 7, ADAM ANT-Ant rap,
WHAM-Wham rap and CAPTAIN SENSIBLE, MODERN ROMANCE,
NINA HAGEN & others). But Falco made a big mistake:
with songs like Ganz Wien or even European smash hit
Der Kommissar he made a lot of enemies in his hometown
Vienna, people who didn't like a native son of theirs
giving worldwide the impression their city was a drug antre.
Since then Falco was never welcome at home, which I
believe was a burden to heavy for him to handle, leading
him to his tragic death back in 1998 in a mysterious car accident in the Dominican Republic where he lived
auto exiled the last years of his life.
Though non of this LP's songs were US or UK hits,
English cover version of Der Kommissar, by British
band AFTER THE FIRE, hit US #5 (& UK #47) in 1983.
Falco enjoyed the success he was seeking in 1986 when his
all time classic hit Rock Me Amadeus topped both UK & US
charts and ballad Jeanny was a smash hit all over Europe.
Falco's songs are exceptional, his interpretation unique
and beyond comparison. Rap music may owe a lot of things
to German myth KRAFTWERK for helping them in creating their
music forms, but they owe equally to this descendant of Mozart
for opening their way to the top of the charts and the Land of
Loadsamoney. Beware though: the rating refers only to
German speaking Amazon friends, though you never really know
what language that crazy son of a gun is rapping in!

Falcos first album Einzelhaft is just pure genius. Honestly not one weak track and an album that I listen through beginning to end every time. Zuviel Hitze being my favorite track and song of his. A perfect debut by a great artist. A pure 5 stars and I highly recommend to all fans of great music. This album is an essential must listen and have.

"Einzelhaft" (what the LP cover indicates) or Solitary Confinment, is the end result in Falco's classic observation of anti-establishment and social disorder. From the opening track "Zuviel Hitze" (Too Much Heat) we're placed in Falco's world of deception and reckless abandonment, and it only gets worse for him in his constant attempts to snub his nose at authority. The mega-smash "Der Kommissar" (or The Commisioner, which was also covered by After The Fire) is another example of his refusing to bend to the rules and regulations of society (the classic video confirms it as well). In "Siebzehn Jahr" (Seventeen Years) Falco becomes consumed with the charms of a beautiful blonde minor which would explain the sequel of Der Kommissar on the following track. That being "Auf Der Flucht" or On The Run, is another poke at the police atmosphere that excist around his every movement. Not to be mistaken as a concept LP, but it sure would have made an interesting one as every song leads to his altimate demise, hence; Einzelhaft.

Whatever your opinions are of Falco's reckless approach concerning law and order and living on the edge. You can't deny the power and intensity of this 1982 (his first) release. Produced by long time cohort Robert Ponger, Einzelhaft is an "in your face" look at the social disorder and graphic decay of society, and the anti-establishment attitudes that excisted during the post-punk era. The David Bowie-esque "Helden Von Heute" (Heroes Of Today) is mere confirmation of this testament. If you're just discovering Falco because of the ever popular Rock Me Amadeus (which is still in rotation on VH1), his first release is a poignant place to start.

"Einzelhaft" is one of my favorite albums (CD) of all time! It still sounds as incredible now as it did back in 1983 when I first bought it on cassette (which I still have, by the way!). I originally bought it because of "Der Kommissar", but the CD as a whole is just incredible. I understand some German, having studied it in high school and college, so I pretty much know what each song is about (and what the titles of the songs mean) even though I don't understand every single word. But hey, knowing German isn't necessary to enjoy the incredible songs on this CD. It is truly a masterpiece that stands the test of time. I bought this 25th Anniversary Edition even though I already have the original CD release from GIG records. There are 2 CD's in this release and they look like mini-vinyl records. Very cool and unique! The sound quality is excellent, too. These CD's are not contained in a traditional jewel case, however. Instead, it is a cardboard case. Also, there is an insert with text about the CD and other things (in German of course) and the lyrics are also included (except for Ganz Wien, I believe, but I can't remember at the moment). The 1st CD contains the original release of Einzelhaft, while the 2nd CD is a bonus CD containing an anniversary remix of "Nie Mehr Schule" and "That Scene", which is an English version of "Ganz Wien". The remix of "Nie Mehr Schule" is actually pretty good, but I didn't care much for "That Scene". I much prefer "Ganz Wien" as sung in German. I don't think it's ever a good idea to try to remake a song in English, as the meaning gets lost in translation. Besides, I much prefer to hear Falco sing in his native language.Read more ›
